Rod was appointed as Brandon’s City Manager/Chief Administrative Officer in November of 2017, after serving as the Acting City Manager since February of 2017.

For nearly a decade prior to that, Rod held the General Manager of the Operational Services Division role with the City of Brandon, and held various progressive leadership roles within Brandon’s corporate structure dating back to the early 2000’s. It was in these leadership roles that Rod gained an appreciation for the various aspects of local government, including Strategic Planning, Finance, Budgeting and Accountability, Public Policy Development and Senior Level Communication.

Rod graduated from the Saskatchewan Institute of Applied Science and Technology in 1987 with a background in civic technology. Beginning his career with the City of Brandon in the field of engineering, Rod then acquired a Certified Engineering Technologist designation shortly after. An interest in leadership principles led him to obtain a Masters Certificate in Municipal Leadership from York University in 2012. He is currently working on obtaining a National Advanced Certificate in Local Authority Administration from the University of Alberta.

Rod is a lifelong resident of Brandon, and his vision as its newest City Manager/Chief Administrative Officer is to provide relevant services and programs for the community, along with excellent customer service, ultimately earning the community’s respect and trust.
